Bedbugs are becoming an increasingly common problem in the UK, due to many more of us staying in hotel accommodation as well as the increased movement of secondhand furniture, through auction and recycling sites. They are not regarded as disease transmitters but their presence can be no less disturbing.
A thorough survey, treatment and monitoring plan is the only way to ensure eradication of bedbugs. If you do believe that you have a bed bug issue then please call us immediately and try to keep clothing and bedding contained within the relevant room until we have fedback following our initial, no obligation survey.
The common bedbug (Cimex lectularius) has three development stages – egg, nymph and adult. The nymph and adults have similar lifestyles, hiding away in crevices, cracks and seams during the day; coming out at night to feed on the blood of their sleeping hosts.
The bites cause irritation, which can be severe in some cases, resulting in loss of sleep, lack of energy and listlessness; particularly in children.
Modern building methods and the increased use of central heating allow the bedbug to be prolific all year round.
We’re here to help with your bedbug problem.
